A.N.A.L.O.G. (from Atari Newsletter And Lots Of Games) was an American computer magazine devoted to the Atari 8-bit home computer line. It was known for its "advanced" programs in comparison to most type-in magazines of the era, especially its main rival, ANTIC, another long-lived magazine devoted to the Atari 8-bit line. ANALOGs first issue was released in January/February 1981 and it was published bi-monthly until November/December 1983 and then monthly from January 1984 on, interrupted once for approximately six-months in late 1986-early 1987. In 1988, it was sold to LFP, Inc. It continued to run until its final issue in December 1989, totalling 79 issues.
Lee H. Pappas and Michael DesChesnes co-launched ANALOG. The full meaning of the acronym was rarely spelled out in the magazine. Originally the title as printed on the cover was A.N.A.L.O.G. 400/800 Magazine, but by the eighth issue it changed to A.N.A.L.O.G. Computing. Though the dots remained on the cover, it was simply referred to as ANALOG or ANALOG Computing inside the magazine.
